Union says con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions bro­ken off

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

OT­TAWA — The union rep­re­sent­ing Canada Bor­der Ser­vices Agency work­ers in con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions says talks have bro­ken off af­ter three days of me­di­a­tion. The Pub­lic Ser­vice Al­liance of Canada says it’s been at the bar­gain­ing ta­ble with the Trea­sury Board for more than two years. PSAC says it’s look­ing for the gov­ern­ment to of­fer bor­der agents the same ben­e­fits as other law en­force­ment of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing the RCMP. It says it’s ask­ing for a com­mit­ment to al­low early re­tire­ment, and com­pen­sa­tion and work­ing con­di­tions that match that of the RCMP. PSAC says it rep­re­sents about 8,000 work­ers.
